An excellent day out that captured the interest of all participants, from 12 to 60 years.
After getting the ticket booklet it was perfect. I tried to redeem my voucher at San Francisco Bay Cruises office (Pier 39, Suite HM6). I could not find this office and a call went directly to an announcement.
A short walk to the Aquarium on the Bay was much better and worth the visit!

We enjoyed the tours we took very much! The guides were very knowledgeable and entertaining as well! We happened to be in San Francisco during the 4th of July weekend with a very large crowd of others with the same idea!
Our buses were full and very happy to be where we were on top of the bus! With the best view!
Thank you for an awesome experience!
This place is wonderful for families with young children and want educational and fun avtivities. Our kids enjoyed it very much.
This was my first visit to the Academy of Science despite being a Bay Area native for 25 years. The reason I bought the ticket was because of the T-Rex just inside the lobby and I had realized that I've never seen a dinosaur fossil in person before. I was also very interested in visiting the rainforest exhibit and didn't look too much into it beyond that. My fiance and I were treated to a wonderfully warm experience with dozens of birds and butterflies and all manner of non-native plant life. On top of that, we were treated to an Aquarium that was so much better than Pier 39s. I didn't even know it was there until we took the elevator down! The species in this place are MASSIVE. Your jaw will drop with awe when you see these sea creature who must be hundreds and hundreds of years old. It is almost as if you are taking a step back in time. And the interactive panels for all of the displays was a very nice touch.
Unfortunately we did not get to visit the planetarium this time. That is a top priority for our next visit. We will definitely be back.
This tour was fun and I really enjoyed it. The only thing I would like to complain about is the fact that I did not get to pick my own time to take my tour. I am an early riser and I was FORCED to take a 10:30 a.m. tour. Other than that I liked the tour
Anthony was our tour guide and he was very personable and informative. The tour gave us a good overview of San Fran. Our only disappointment was that it took a while to get started. It is a great way to see this wonderful city.
Very handy way around the city area without resorting to taxis. Helps you make decisions on what to see and how to get there, as well as a live commentary on the places and the history, and normally a laugh or two, depending on who you get.
Well worth it to get the skip in line pass. We walked right in,while the other lines to get tix were extremely long. Aquarium level is great, my daughter enjoyed this one better than Peir 39 aquarium. It's a good museum, but trying to find a spot to sit for lunch is as bad as Ghiradelli.
While the California Academy of Sciences is a great place to visit and definitely worth doing, this skip the line ticket option is not worth it. While the printed voucher says you can go straight to the entrance, we were told this was wrong and we would still need to line up with everyone else in the ticket line to claim the actual ticket. Better to just buy your ticket when you get there.
The Ca Academy of Sciences is amazing. There is so much to see and do. We spent hours there and still didn't even come close to seeing everything. My only complaint about buying my ticket through this site is that you cannot skip the line. You still have to go to customer service or the ticket booth and get tickets. The staff member told us they have told Viator that many times and they still haven't changed it on the website.
